Arkansas Historical Association 77th Annual Conference

April 19-21, 2018
Fort Smith, Arkansas

The Arkansas Historical Association (AHA) invites presentation proposals for its seventy-seventh annual conference, to be held in Fort Smith, April 19-21, 2018. Fort Smith is well known for its border and frontier history so it seems logical to have those items as the centerpiece for the 2018 conference.  But we are seeking presentations not only on physical frontiers and boundaries in the Fort Smith area but also on all manners of interaction and exchange among peoples, nations, and cultures within and around Arkansas. Presentations will be limited to twenty minutes. The use of audio-visual elements is encouraged.

Please send proposals of approximately 200 words to:

Steven Kite, program chair
PO Box 3649
Fort Smith, AR 72913

Proposals should be submitted by October 20, 2017, and include a mailing address, phone number, and email address.  Proposals may be submitted by email. Please contact the program chair with any questions.  It is now required that in order to participate in the conference, all presenters must be members in good standing of the Arkansas Historical Association. Membership details are available on the AHA website, arkansashistoricalassociation.org.
